The Bills will have 2 practices with the Panthers. They will take place in Carolina August 13 and 14 in preparation for the preseason game on August 16. THE JOINT PRACTICES ARE AN OUTGROWTH OF THE CLOSE COOPERATION BETWEEN THE 2 TEAMS. SEAN McDERMOTT WAS DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR FOR THE PANTHERS BEFORE COMING TO TOWN. BRANDON BEANE WAS WITH THE CAROLINA FRONT OFFICE. SEEING THE WISDOM OF PRACTICING IN THE HEAT PRIOR TO THE SUMMER MATCHUP, WE JOIN FORCES AS 1BUFFALO.
